Lloyd’s Barbeque is presenting $5,000 to each organization.
Second Harvest Heartland utilizes community relationships to end hunger and distributes more than 51 million pounds of food and grocery products annually to nearly 1,000 food shelves, soup kitchens, shelters and programs. The company also donated funds to the organization in 2011, 2012 and 2013.
House of Charity’s mission is to feed those in need, house those experiencing homelessness, and empower individuals to achieve independence. The Food Centre feeds more than 350 people each day.
“We are thrilled to partner with these organizations to contribute to their efforts to feed those in need in our area,” said Jason E. Reuss, plant manager, Lloyd’s Barbeque. “Our employees and the company are excited to continue fighting hunger in our community.”
For the fourth consecutive year, Hormel Foods is giving funds to U.S. manufacturing facilities to share with nonprofits in their respective communities to fight hunger. In 2013, Hormel Foods donated $220,000 to local hunger relief organizations in more than 20 U.S. communities where it has manufacturing facilities. In 2014, the company will provide 39 plant locations with funds to help local organizations fight the hunger needs specific to each community.
“Hormel Foods has been able to help our plants relieve hunger in their local communities for the past three years,” said Julie H. Craven, vice president of corporate communications at Hormel Foods. “Because of the success we’ve had with this program, and as part of our ongoing commitment to helping fight hunger in the areas where we live and work, we are further expanding these donations to a total of 39 locations.”
Hormel Foods is helping those in need both in the United States and internationally through its On Our Way to Ending Hunger program. The company collaborates with retailers, nonprofits and the government on hunger relief efforts; nourishes the hungry in the U.S. and abroad; and motivates individuals and corporate partners to take action to fight hunger.
